The holidays are here! That means most of your time will likely be spent baking, cooking, prepping, list-making, shopping, and hosting. And now you’re tired. Too tired for more cooking! So, head to Chapter One Food & Drink, instead of making yet another meal at home. You deserve to get off your feet and come in for a bite of the best food in Mystic!
But what can you expect to see on the menu? New American cuisine, fresh-caught seafood from our historic seaport village, and specialty cocktails to start with an enchanting coastal vibe to finish. Here is just a taste of what Chapter One offers you this season.
Soup: New England Clam Chowder
Your mouth will water throughout your meal when you choose our delectable New England Clam Chowder as a starter.
Since our restaurant is situated in the center of a historic seaport village, fresh clams are delivered to your plate in the form of this stunning soup the same day they are caught. Yum!
Appetizer: Devils On Horseback
If you want to make your meal a truly memorable experience, try one of our more exotic appetizer options: Devils On Horseback.
You can feast on these Morocco-native Medjool dates. They are filled with gorgonzola cheese, wrapped in smoked bacon, and drizzled with balsamic reduction. The sweetest of the date mixed with the saltiness of the bacon and the classic gorgonzola bite balance this dish out nicely.
Light And Fresh Selection: Oyster And Clam Raw Bar
Why dine out in a seaport town if you don’t take advantage of your proximity to the open ocean and the delicacies that live within it?
A customer favorite at Chapter One is our oyster and raw clam bar. Slurp up fresh-caught oysters and littleneck clams with a refreshing shrimp cocktail to tie it all together. Both our oysters and clams are sold at market price, so you know they’re fresh as can be!
Vegetarian And Gluten-Free Entrée: Vegan Paella
If you’re a vegetarian, eat gluten-free, or simply want a lighter fare for your entrée, then the Vegan Paella is a delicious option for your main course meal.
Get a taste of the vegetable-packed dish made with cauliflower, edamame, sun-dried tomatoes, asparagus, and sautéed spinach tossed with our house-made risotto. This vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free option is perfect for satisfying any diet without sacrificing taste.
Meat As The Main Course: Chapter One Burger
Our flagship burger – the Chapter One burger – is a crowd favorite for a reason. Sometimes you just need a good burger, and boy, do we deliver!
Take a bite out of 6 oz of Black Angus beef seasoned with a house spice rub. It’s topped with pepper jack cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, and our Chapter One sauce. Enjoy it on a Brioche bun with Chapter fries and a crunchy pickle on the side.
The Chapter One Mystic Ambiance
Mystic, Connecticut, is a historic seaport village in a small town setting. The Chapter One restaurant in Mystic gives off a comfortable and casual vibe, making it the go-to spot for many diners in the area for brunch, lunch, dinner, and drinks.
But don’t confuse casual with careless. Our top-notch service and fine dining experience will make you wonder if you’re at a Michelin-star restaurant. Chapter One’s friendly staff, happy customers, coastal location, and mouth-watering menu options make eating out with us a memorable experience from start to finish.
